2012 iLAB Resident – Follow the Water Walks

July 13-15, 2012

Spend time and explore the natural and man-made landscapes that lead from the top of the watershed to the Bronx River. You will play games, dance, draw, write, envision and interact with the communities that call East Tremont home. There will be walking, building, gardening, story-gathering and dancing!

The plan is to use iLab’s choreographic, scientific and cultural research to develop interactive movement structures for a culminating “Follow the Water Walks” model that will offer people an embodied experience of the storm water routes and the Bronx River, with attention to what was, is and will be part of that living landscape. These walks will be led in collaboration with community participants and hopefully the interactions will cultivate and support understanding, stewardship and agency among Bronx residents.
